    Wow. Bubble sort just gave me a seizure.

    Soo am I the only one who liked those then?? I want to sample them....

  3. Now I want to get a sound sample, slice it up and perform temporal sorts on it.

    It makes sense that the more efficient sort algorithms don't have as much of 'rhythm' to them as bubble sort. Redundant work = repeated steps = rhythmic sound.

    Interesting and cool; thanks for sharing.

    I wish my teacher had shown me these videos when I was intro to algorithms class.

    Well, probably not as educational as Sortvis ( http://sortvis.org/ ), but definitely more entetaining

    I think I liked the sound of selection sort the best... something about the occasional high tones made it sound more musical.

    Sounds like the noises that the tanks in the original Scorched Earth made when they exploded.
